Which is the seasonal equivalent of making hay whilst the sun shines or lemonade when life hands you lemons. I could have moaned about my course being postponed and losing a day’s pay (again) due to the weather but instead I decided to get up and play with the dogs in the snow, something I didn’t have time for a couple of weeks ago and we rarely get to do here in ole’ blighty.

I noted that despite folks not being able to get to work (or the Gym) the cafes and restaurants were full!!!

I have used my unexpected day off to maximum effect so all is good!

Steve was less enthusiastic as he had brought home the team car (an Aston Martin DB11) to practice driving over the weekend before he drives it to Italy this Monday! Snow and a powerful rear wheel drive, extremely expensive car are not a combination that provides a relaxed Sunday drive!!!

Miki, Mini and Lili on the other hand had a fab time!

As a keen club runner I had become frustrated at a number of recurring running injuries. After seeing a variety of different physios and chiropractors, with varying degrees of success but no complete solution, I was recommended to Helen. Helen took a different approach to other practitioners, looking at the whole body structure, core strength and flexibility and initially recommending a programme based around my basic posture, rather than the actual location of the pain. Following the exercises and programmes recommended by Helen I have managed to stay injury free for over 18 months, and am able to train at increasing levels of intensity. Thank you!
